Grant & Project Development  for Musicians - Part I

RBC Launchpad Music Entrepreneurship Program presents... 

In these two sessions, Ely Lyonblum will work with you to develop your music projects. Whether you are recording an album, preparing for a tour or curating a concert series, these workshops are designed to be brave spaces for new ideas. Participants will learn the three steps of developing projects: exploratory discussions of project ideas and potential funding sources; comprehensive reviews of proposals through all stages of conceptualization; and tips for project management. Opportunities for funding range from composing and recording, production and touring, marketing and audience development, to professional training and capacity building in digital spaces.
